Helen Hayes and Barrymore Award-winning writer-director Aaron Posner (The Chosen) mounts an encore performance of his latest play at the always-innovative Woolly Mammoth Theatre after its runaway success last summer. Helmed by the company's artistic director Howard Shalwitz, this admittedly loose and frequently irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull follows a famous actress whose son, an aspiring theater director, wants make a name for himself on his own. But when his muse, the lovely Nina, falls for his mother's lover, all kinds of romantic and artistic disappointment ensue. Posner turns the original play's famous subtext into scenes and songs, calling Stupid F***ing Bird "a rough-and-tumble meta-theatrical mash-up." Learn More

My family enjoyed the performance. My 7 old daughter grinned ear to ear the entire time, and even my 5 year son giggled out loud a few times. My only quibble is with Ms. Swamp. She was a little too sexy for my taste. OK, the actor is a beautiful young woman, but did she really need to be dressed in full dominatrix regalia? Seems like making her scarier would have been a better creative choice given the source material and the audience. At any rate, I appreciate the production company's efforts and look forward to attending future performances.
